Who thinks up all these crazy “holidays” ??
One of my friends on Facebook started a group where we try a new vegan recipe every week. So far we’ve had black bean burgers and chipotle chili, both of which were excellent.
Black Bean Burgers
2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 onion, minced
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 carrots, shredded
1/2 cup quick oats
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste
Buns (we did not use vegan buns, but you can!)
Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a pan. Combine onions, garlic, salt, and pepper and cook until onions are translucent. Add carrots, cumin, coriander, chili powder, and cayenne pepper until carrots are tender. Remove pan from heat.
In a bowl, mash the beans and then add the contents of the pan along with the soy sauce and quick oats. Mix and form four patties. Place in freezer for 30 minutes to set. Cook patties on a pan coated in cooking spray over medium heat, flipping halfway.
Use patties to create your dream veggie burger.
The herbs came back to life in the fall! Now they’re growing really well.
Dad & Michael have their traditional “making of the dinner rolls” for special occasions, Greg with his chili & sausage, and Kelly with her beautiful kitchen & outdoor oven. Michael is always trying something new and I like to hear about what he’s doing.
It had been a while since we had seen them. We went to supper at Firehouse Subs and then hung around with them at the dance for a while. It was killing me to be there and not dance, so we came home. I feel satisfied and content.
We had Crispy Rosemary Chicken & Fries with green beans. Mmmm!
Well except for the time in grade school I broke my arm just under the shoulder and the time in high school I chipped the same wrist. But I don’t really remember much except my mom had to give me a bath while I had the full cast on my arm.
Some days, it’s just nice to stay home.
It’s from South Dakota and it’s tan, pink, and sparkly. Pretty neat!
I never realized how much stuff you do with two hands. He’s been doing way more than his share of dishes and laundry, plus helping me with a lot of kitchen stuff. He’s there’s when I try things and discover I need need help.
Thank you, dear!! xxooqq
We went in there because there were signs all over the roads nearby.. Store Closing! Hurry! So we went to see what it was all about, because we needed a couple of throw rugs due to our recent redesign. We stepped into the store and WOW!! The amount of gaudy items in there was astounding. Massive furniture, ornately carved and gilded… wall hangings with all manner of sparkly things attached (my favorite was a three foot diamond necklace)… and a vast array of statues, lamps, and knickknacks with a ton of gold, silver, mirrors, and fringe. It was amazing. And then the auctioneer… the auctioneer! He was straight out of a movie, with his mmbbubba hey lmmana 5 hundred do I hear 6. I laughed for a long time after we left.
It’s great to be free of the clutter.
When I have to fill in forms while testing repeatedly, it’s great. Also for my monthly billing.
